New FAQ's up 9/7/12

GW has posted main rulebook and codex FAQ's.  They can be found here.  I've only looked at IG so far. Further analysis to be burning up the internets to be sure.

What I see for IG largely makes sense:

Grav Chute insertion works anytime a Valk/Vend has moved more than 6", so it works when zooming

Commissars can't cap allies,  while I can see high comedic value...

IG Priests don't affect allies (duh)

Allies don't take orders even if an IC attached to an IG unit.

Rough riders lances explained more clearly

And my favorite:  Leman Russes are HEAVY vehicles.

Venerable Brother Lucas -- Painted.

Now that he's painted, I thought I'd post a few pics of the Grey Knights Ven-Dread that I converted for the Tale of 4(ish) Gamers that was running at my FLGS.  I had a bit of a quandary in painting him; do I stick with the grey scheme that I'd settled on for the vehicles, or do I paint him all shiny silver, like the other Grey Knights?  In the end I opted to paint him like a vehicle while painting the helmet in the sarcophagus silver.

I used a few different washes, Ogryn Flesh, Green and Blue to get a heat stained effect on the barrels of the autocannon.

The Throne of Judgement makes a great chassis for a dreadnaught but it does have a lot of details to paint; A LOT of details.  I'm still not sure that I got all of the purity seals.
